The Aruba Networks™ S3500 Mobility Access Switch is a new class of product that brings role-based user access to wired networks.

Similar to other Aruba Mobility Access Switches, the S3500 is an integral part of the Aruba Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture, which delivers secure virtualized access services to users, independent of their location, access method, device or application.

The S3500 is available in five models, including 24 and 48 10/100/1000BASE-T with optional power-over-Ethernet (PoE) or 24 1000BASE-X SFP ports.

Each model also supports an optional uplink module that provides an additional four Gigabit Ethernet/10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink and stacking ports. The PoE models are available with up to 30 watts per port based on the IEEE 802.3af PoE and IEEE 802.3at PoE+ standards.

Multiple Mobility Access Switches, including the S3500, may be interconnected to form an ArubaStack™.

This provides network connectivity for up to 384 Gigabit Ethernet devices such as virtual desktops, IP phones, videophones, classroom peripherals, medical devices, point-of-sale devices and security cameras as well as any 802.11n Wi-Fi access point (AP).

The S3500’s redundant power supply and modular, hot-swappable components make it ideal for high-density, high-availability wiring closets.

Aruba 3000 Series Mobility Controllers

High-performance, standalone 3000 series Mobility Controllers from Aruba deliver a wide range of network services to medium and large regional offices. The 3000 series supports up to 8,192 users and performs stateful firewall policy enforcement at speeds up to 4 Gbps.

High-performance, standalone 3000 series Mobility Controllers from Aruba deliver a wide range of network services to medium and large regional offices. The 3000 series supports up to 8,192 users and performs stateful firewall policy enforcement at speeds up to 4 Gbps.

Through secure IP tunnels, Aruba access points (APs) and Mobility Access Switches move traffic to the 3000 series over a public or private transport network and provide local bridging at the access layer, depending on the end user application or IT traffic forwarding requirements.

In addition to supporting up to 128 APs or 32 Mobility Access Switches, the 3000 series can support up to 512 Remote APs (RAPs) when deployed in the data center as part of an Aruba remote networking solution.

The 3000 series also manages authentication, encryption, virtual private network (VPN) connections, IPv4 and IPv6 Layer 3 networking, the Aruba Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF), Aruba Adaptive Radio Management (ARM), and Aruba RFProtect™ Spectrum Analysis and Wireless Intrusion Protection capabilities.

Clustering and centralized management enable the deployment of large networks with hundreds of Mobility Controllers with minimal staff. A master Mobility Controller can manage local Mobility Controllers, while AirWave® provides enterprise-wide clarity and control through real-time monitoring, historical reporting and troubleshooting.
